The Founding Of SWAN

The Sex Workers and Allies Network started in the aftermath of a rash of police arrests and attempts at public shaming of sex workers in the New Haven, Connecticut area. Activists united and successfully demanded an end to schemes by the New Haven police to conduct stings against sex workers.
